My brother worked in the pharmaceutical industry a few years ago, they were desperate to get their scab dip licensed for showers as it was potentially a huge world wide market but everytime they tried to prove its efficacy it failed hence no licence.
He tells the story of dipping and showering sheep in orange dye and a couple of days later clipping them, the dipped sheep were bright orange but the showered sheep were still white proving the dip had not got anywhere near the skin.

I did look into buying a shower years ago but when I looked into it I very fast went off the job and bought a mobile dipper
 
Why not use Crovect or if you are not going to handle them again then use Dysect.
Applied correctly Crovect or cheap copy work very well. If applied in March then you also greatly reduce the Ticks as well.

Too many people do not apply it correctly or at the right rate which may be the reason it isn't working as well as it should.
Most people underestimate the weight of in lamb ewes.
Plenty will weigh well over 80kgs and not be very big!
20ml regardless over 60kg

Early moves to target wild oats

Growers and agronomists now face the dilemma of an early application to remove competition from emerged wild oats, or holding off to allow more weeds to germinate.

Syngenta grassweeds technical manager, Georgina Wood, urges Axial Pro treatment as soon as conditions allow, once weeds are actively growing.

“That offers the chance to control wild oats more cost effectively at lower rates, whilst there is still the flexibility to tailor application rates up to 0.82 l/ha for larger or over wintered weeds and difficult situations.

“The variability of crops and situations this season means decisions for appropriate Axial Pro rates and application techniques will need to be made on a field-by-field basis,” she advised.
